Sue Sylvester: [to Will and Bryan] I came over here to congratulate you on your new role. Local director Herb Duncan does the dry clean for the cheerios, and he let slip that you just landed the lead role in Les Mis!
[Will looks overwhelmed, and Bryan lets go of his smile]
Sue Sylvester: Congratulations. I'm ecstatic! And the good news just keep coming, because you got a part too, Bryan. The exciting role of Townsperson. You got a line too. Right back here in the second act, you get to say... 'Hooray!' Congratulations to both...

I have been a fan of glee, because the first group of episodes had characters that I understood. What a difference six months make!

What are these creators thinking? This series has become MTV with performers that nobody cares about. Nice songs done in a "broadway" kind of way, but I need to like the people doing the songs, because they're just OK. I'm not going to buy the record! This is truly the end for me. They have lost me as a viewer and I'm really sorry to say this.

I absolutely loved the first half season. I bought the HD versions of the episodes, because I couldn't imagine not being able to see them when they weren't available on the fox website. My only regret is that I don't have someone who will watch this crap and report back when they figure out that this doesn't work so I can start watching again.

I'm out of here (and the people who think this is good are grateful).
